1: 







To record events and familiar 
happenings as they occur during 
these student years is to arrest 
the inexorable fleetness of time; 
to contain within a phrase the 
illusiveness of warm friendly re- 
lations; to hold in suspension 
wit and humor and young 
laughter; to recreate a moment 
pregnant with animation; to 
attempt all this has been our 
purpose.

June 5, 1953 



To the Class of 1953: 



To those of us who have aspired to a certain goal, 
we have a deep feeling of satisfaction when we have success- 
fully met the challenge. The members of the class of 1953 
should take a great deal of pride in having accomplished that 
which they set out to do several years ago. 

Let me remind you, however, that you are embarking 
on a new and far greater adventure, one that will not span a 
few short years but one which will determine your mettle. 
That adventure is the career of life, with a test far more 
important and decisive than that of the classroom. 

I feel that you as graduates of the New Bedford 
Textile Institute will meet that challenge and pass the test. 

With best wishes,

STUDENT COMMITTEE 

The Student's Committee of the New Bedford Textile Institute is composed of all the 
class officers. Its purpose is threefold: (1) to represent the student body, (2) to procure benefits 
for the student body and the institute, and (3) to sponsor student activities financed through 
the Student's Committee Fund. 

The events sponsored by the committee included a buffet luncheon held in December 
in the school gymnasium. A student participation talent show followed the luncheon. Also 
included among the Student Committee's activities was a Barn Dance held in April. 

This year the Student Committee had undertaken many projects and was successful in 
procuring a pay telephone and a milk machine for the benefit of the student body. The pro- 
ceeds from utilities go into the Student Committee Fund. The committee was also influential 
in establishment of a student's personality rating and 
a dean's list. 



The members of the Student Committee wish to 
extend their best wishes to the graduating class of 1953.

INTER-FRATERNITY COUNCIL 



The Inter-Fraternity Council was formed in 1947 by the three fraternities' 
and the sorority to bring about a closer coordination of social, educational, and 
professional activities within the institute. 

The Council is composed of twelve members, three from each of the 
fraternities and the sorority, who serve for the duration of one school year as 
representatives to the meetings of the Council. At the first meeting, a chairman, 
a secretary, and a treasurer are chosen from the twelve representatives. A faculty 
advisor, selected from the instructors at the institute, is chosen by the council 
members to serve for the term of one school year. 

Each year the council draws up a calendar of social events for the forth- 
coming semester. Each group submits a list of prospective dates to the council, 
and if there are no conflictions within the group, the calendar is sent to the 
Faculty Committee on Controls for approval. If "there are no further complica- 
tions with other school groups, the dates are considered accepted. 

The big event of the first semester was a Semi-Formal Dance. Louis 
Queen and his orchestra provided the music for the successful affair, which was 
held in the Ballroom of the New Bedford Hotel. Highlight of the evening was 
the crowning of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Sears as King and Queen. 

The Inter-Fraternity Council and its members take this opportunity to 
wish the graduating class the best of luck in all their future undertakings.

The Beta Chapter of Kappa Sigma Phi Sorority opened the 
school social year with a Get-Acquainted Party for all the girls 
of the school. All those attending had a good time and made 
many new friends. 

In November, bids were sent to non-members and five 
acceptances were received. Hazing took place the week of 
November 17. Some of the highlights were "Air-Raid Day", the 
talent show in the auditorium, singing (???) on the front steps, 
and a parade to the center in costume. The Three Red Ink 
Spots, a sweet Chinese lady, and a mechanic were the eye-catching 
new members during Hell Week. After hazing, a formal in- 
stallation of new members and a dance at the Mattapoisett 
Manor, attended by sisters from Bradford Durfee Technical 
Institute, were held on November 22. 

Our membership thus enlarged, we held our annual faculty 
luncheon on December 15. After the delicious meal, Mr. Moly- 
neux and Mr. Beardsworth entertained our guests. As usual, 
following this luncheon, the sorority lounge was left open to 
the student body for the remainder of the week, and judging 
from the way the rest of the coffee and sandwiches disappeared, 
the male contingent greatly appreciated this. 

Keeping in line with the Christmas theme, Kappa Sigma 
Phi undertook for the first time the filling of a food basket for 
a needy family in New Bedford, and also sponsored a collection 
for the children of St. Mary's Home and offered it to them as 
a Christmas token. Both efforts were greatly appreciated by the 
recipients. 

Second-semester activities included a dance sponsored in 
conjunction with Sigma Phi Tau Fraternity, the annual weiner 
roast, and the election and installation of new officers. 

Kappa Sigma Phi Sorority wishes to thank the students and 
faculty of New Bedford Textile Institute for their cooperation 
this year and to extend best wishes to the Class of 1953.

Delta Kappa Phi Fraternity began its 1952-53 
season with a new slate of officers, namely Robert Sala, 
Consul; Ted Murphy, Pro-consul; Richard Lafferty, 
Annotator; James Siddall, Treasurer; Robert Lomax, 
Scribe, and Steven Vazopoulos, Sergeant at Arms. 

The "DEKES" started off the year with a testimonial banquet for Professor John Foster, a member of 
Delta Kappa Phi, who was elected President of New Bedford Textile Institute. Many active and alumni mem- 
bers attended the banquet and presented Brother John Foster with an over-night bag. 

The months of September through November were busy with rehearsals for the Delta Kappa Phi 
Minstrel Show, which was presented on December 6. The minstrel show was a great success as the student body, 
faculty and friends really enjoyed themselves that night. 

Delta Kappa Phi held its first Open House December 11. The evening was highlighted by the presence 
of seventy-five non-fraternity men along with the active chapter members, a few alumni and eleven of the 
school's instructors who are members. The program consisted of movies and refreshments. 

Bid Week proved to be successful as twenty-six pledges suffered through Hell week and the First and 
Second Degrees. The pledgees received their Third Degree on March 22, at a formal banquet held at the 
Marion Steak House. 

Came the weekend of April 24 and the brothers of the Delta Chapter were host to the 54th. Annual 
National Convention of the Delta Kappa Phi Fraternity in New Bedford, Mass. Many old acquaintances from 
the previous years at Raleigh, N.C. and Philadelphia, Pa. were renewed and new ones made. A tour of the city, 
institute and Whaling Museum was made on Saturday. The convention wound up with a banquet on Satur- 
day night. 

We closed out the fraternity year with the annual clambake which was held at Perry's Grove. The high- 
light of the affair was a baseball game between the alumni and faculty versus the student members; the old 

timers won. 

Delta Kappa Phi looks forward to the coming 
1953-54 season for another year of school fun and fellow- 
ship, and wishes its members of the departing class and 
all the seniors the best of luck.

PHI PSI FRATERNITY 





Beta Chapter, Phi Psi Fraternity, began the 
1952-53 school year with an active membership 
of 46 brothers. 

The chapter's social calendar commenced 
with our Annual Fall Dance held in November 
at the Moose Hall. Soon to follow was our Christ- 
mas Party Dance at the Mattapoisett Manor. 
Also during the month of December, a dinner 
was given at Stevenson's in honor of Mr. Peter 
C. Wayner, superintendent of the New Bedford 
Gilt Edge Silk Mills, and Mr. Robert E. Tobin, 
plant manager of the Hathaway Mfg. Co., of 
New Bedford. They both were accepted into the 
brotherhood of Phi Psi with Honorary Degrees. 

In February 20 pints of blood were donated 
by the brothers to the Red Cross. This marked 
the second year that Beta Chapter donated 
blood in commemoration of Brother Bill Liolin 
who was killed in Korea two years ago. 

During the month of March, the new pledgees 
were given their first, second and third degrees. 
Beta Chapter accepted five new brothers and 



confer-ed the third degree upon them at a ban- 
quet held at Beaconsville Hotel in Boston. This 
affair was held in conjunction with our brothers 
from Delta Chapter at Fall River and Gamma 
Chapter at Lowell. On March 18, the brothers 
of Beta Chapter elected their new officers: they 
were John Smith, president; William Etchells, 
vice-president; William Silveira, secretary and 
Eugene Cote, treasurer. 

In May Beta Chapter, along with its fellow 
brothers throughout the nation, both alumni 
and active, traveled to Philadelphia, Pa. to 
celebrate the 50th. Anniversary of the founding 
of Phi Psi Fraternity. This year witnessed the 
greatest gathering ever to participate at the 
annual conventions. 

To close the school year, Beta Chapter held 
its annual Dine and Dance party to extend 
best wishes to its departing brothers. 

Beta Chapter, Phi Psi Fraternity, wishes the 
best of health, luck and fortune to the class of 
1953.

SIGMA PHI TAU FRATERNITY 




Beta chapter of Sigma Phi Tau has enjoyed twelve months of helpful and joyful activities 
since the last edition of the Fabricator. 

We started the year off with a new form of initiati&n. This year Sigma Phi Tau adopted the 
"Help Week" idea, instead of the usual "Hell Week." We found this new idea worked out very 
well. The pledgees spent many hours at St. Luke's Hospital doing various meanial tasks. The day 
will long be remembered by the pledgees: They really worked! 

A few weeks later the fraternity in conjunction with another fraternity went out to Sol-e-Mar 
Hospital for Children and laid a full-sized playground for the children at the hospital. After the 
hard day's work, we celebrated with a big party. A wonderful time was spent by the brothers and 
their dates who attended the get-together. 

On May second our annual installation dinner was held at the "Harbor" in Marion. The in- 
coming officers were sworn into office after a scrumptious turkey dinner was served to the brothers; 
both alumni and active were invited. This dinner also turned out to be our farewell party for the 
graduating brothers of the fraternity. 

As the present school year began we looked forward to even greater heights. The agenda 
started us off with a stag party for our prospective pledgees. Refreshments were served and movies 
were shown to the enthusiastic turnout of both active and alumni brothers aside from the guests of 
the evening. 

On the fourteenth of March we held a dance with the sorority. Everyone who attended had 
a wonderful time. The evening passed all to quickly with the rythms of Paul Brun and his orchestra. 

The fraternity would like to thank all of the alumni who attended our meetings and social 
gatherings throughout this past year, and sincerely hope that they will continue to take such and 
active interest in our activities in the future. We also would like to wish our alumni brothers serving 
in the armed forces all the luck and good wishes in the world. 

Sigma Phi Tau extends best wishes for success and happiness to all members of the graduating 
class of 1953.

ENGINEERING CLUB 




< The Engineering Club was organized in the Fall of 1951 by the members of Machine Design 
Classes of 1952 and 1953. The purpose of the Engineering club is to further the knowledge and 
education of the engineering student. It will also be a means of bettering the business contacts 
between the student engineer at the institute, and the related industries. 

There are several aims and objectives that the Engineering Club strives for. These aims and 
objectives are: to obtain a broader perspective in engineering; to create a closer relationship be- 
tween ourselves and industry and to attain a closer correlation between theory and practice. 

At our first meeting on March 4, 1952, the first slate of officers elected were Raymond St. 
Pierre, president; Joseph Sargent, vice-president; John Rocha, secretary; David Pearson, treasurer 
and Gardner Fassett, corresponding secretary. 

For the present 1952-53 school year, the officers presiding were Lee C. Calderwood, president; 
Joseph Carando, vice-president; Raymond L. Blanchard, secretary; Edward Furtado, treasurer and 
Gardner Fassett, corresponding secretary. The club was honored and delighted when Assistant Pro- 
fessor Howard Tinkham, acting Head of the Engineering Department, accepted to be our faculty 
advisor. Mr. Fassett was appointed to gather material of a technical nature to start a library for 
the use of the engineering students. The library has grown by leaps and bounds and we hope that 
in the future we shall have literature on all types of engineering data. 

The activities of the club consisted of movies and meetings which were conducted in room 
#4, at the institute, throughout the year. Our first movie was one called "Multipress and How 
You Can Use It." This movie was shown at our meeting on October 30, at which time, we took in 
thirteen new members. 

The Engineering Club has been instrumental in adding several new courses to our curricula. 
These courses are electronics and differential equations. Other achievements were to incorporate a 
personality rating in every student's record and to help establish a Dean's List at the institute. 

The final event of the year was our meeting in May at which time new officers were elected. 
On this occasion a prominent industrialist was invited as guest speaker. 

The Engineering Club wishes to extend best wishes to the Class of 1953.

The New Bedford Textile's Basketball Team had one of the best 
seasons in many years. The team's record was 18 wins and 3 losses. The team 
compiled 1,687 points in 21 games, giving it an average of 80 points per 
game. Their opponents, however, gained only 1,219 points for a game average 
of 58 points. The seniors on the squad were Raymond Blanchard, Harold 
Wrench and Gerald Escolas. 

The first game of the season found Coach "Fran" Tripp's boys in 
excellent shape as they rolled to an easy victory over Massachusetts Maritime 
Academy. The Raiders, led by Harry Wrench and Dick Julio, built up an early 
lead and then coasted on to a 62-32 final score. 

New Bedford next took on Bridgewater State Teachers College and de- 
feated them to the tune of 65-46. The reserves played a prominent role in this 
game as every member of the team entered the scoring column. 

The Providence Bible Institute proved to have a weak team as the 
Raiders easily won their third straight game. The reserves, led by Wrench, 
Escolas, Julio, and Antonietta, again played most of the game. The final score 
was 81-44. 

The fourth game found the Red and Grey traveling to Worcester to take 
on the Worcester State Teachers. Here again the Textile team showed their 
strength as they romped to a 75-50 victory. Dick Julio and Dick Lafferty led the 
team in scoring with 18 and 16 points respectively. 

Durfee Technical Institute was the next visitor to the Raiders' gym. The 
game was close for the first three quarters, but the Raiders soon showed their 
superiority by pulling away in the closing quarter. Vern Gomes led the team 
with a sparkling 27-point performance, while Captain "Red" Blanchard and 
Joe Barbero contributed 14 points each. The final was 79-61. 

The Trippmen gained their third Conference victory and their sixth 
straight win as they downed Gordon College by the score of 87-70. The Trippmen 
got off to an early lead and the outcome seemed certain for them. Gordon's 
team was exceptionally tall, but could not cope with the accurate shooting of 
Don Thatcher and the fine defensive play of Captain Red Blanchard. 

New Bedford's next foe, Roslyn Air Force Base, was taken into defeat 
easily as the Raiders belted the team with a final score of 90-52. The regulars 
rested most of this game as the reserves took over and played their opponents 
evenly. 

Bryant College was host to New Bedford in Providence as the Raiders 
moved slowly in the first quarter. At the end of the first quarter it looked as 
if New Bedford were going to meet with its first defeat of the season. Bryant 
was leading at this time 17-14. Gomes, Blanchard, Barbero, and Julio soon 
found their marks during the second canto and gradually pulled away from the 
home team. The Raiders left the floor at the end of the game victorious by the 
count of 73-58.

Pick Julio paced the attack against Rhode Island School of Design as 
the New Bedfordites chalked up their second highest score of the season in de- 
feating their host 101-64. 

Returning to Conference play the Raiders took on Bridgewater again 
and defeated them 85-69. 

In a benefit game played at Wareham, the Raiders defeated an All- 
American Girl's Team 44-41. The Raiders were very gentlemanly in their ball 
handling and scoring. 

In racking up their 11th straight win against Rhode Island School of 
Design, The Raiders also recorded their highest score of the season 107-61. All 
except two players hit double figures in this game for the Raiders. 

Still on a winning streak, Textile disposed of the Bryant quintet easily 
for the second time. The final score being 85-47. 

The Raiders met their first defeat of the season at the hands of Durfee 
Tech. This game will be discussed many times in the future, because of the 
action packed last two seconds. Could so much have happened in two seconds? 
Well, it is recorded so and Durfee Tech walked off the floor winning 71-70. 

New Bedford got back on a winning streak again as the Providence Bible 
Institute fell under the score of 87-48. 

In defeating the Worcester Teachers, Textile gained its 14th win of the 
season. The score read 88-70. 

Against Lowell Textile the Trippmen easily avenged the previous year's 
loss. The Lowell quintet was outplayed throughout the game as the Trippmen 
pulled away to an early lead and were never threatened. The score looks good 
in the record books, 82-51. 

To defeat Gordon College, Textile had to come from behind in the final 
quarter to show the host team their superiority. The regular five played the 
major portion of the game with only one substitute being used. Score 69-59. 

Textile pulled the surprise of the year when it defeated Stonehill 75-71. 
The big third period by Textile was the deciding factor as they out scored 
Stonehill 31-15. There were no individual standouts in this game for Textile 
as every man played a superior role. In defeating Stonehill, Textile took over 
the Conference lead by a half game. 

Stonehill came back to avenge that defeat and dumped Textile 89-71. 
This defeat cost Textile the Conference lead and the Championship. At one 
time Textile was within six points of Stonehill and it looked as if the Textile 
Team might have pulled it out, however, Stonehill soon took stock and the 
outcome was ascertained. 

The Raiders traveled to Stamford, Conn, and defeated Saint Basil College 
93-48. 

Going on to Philadelphia, the Raiders played their final game of the 
season. It was a hard fought game, but the Raiders could not shake the stiffness 
from their legs and fell to defeat 68-62. The trip will long be remembered though, 
because the team enjoyed itself in New York.

A well played and hard fought game against Brad- 
ford opened the 1952 season for the NBTI booters. The 
Durfee Tech men got off to a good start by taking ad- 
vantage of the inexperienced Red and Grey. In the early 
minutes of the game, Durfee scored two goals while the 
NBTI club fought desperately, but to no avail. We lost 
our opener 4-1; the lone goal being scored by Artzi. 

The second game was more of a white washing for 
the Red Raiders. Bridgewater led throughout the game 
and won a 7-2 victory. Artzi and Baines contributed the 
two points for the home cause. 

The team next traveled to Lowell Textile only to 
meet a more experienced and stronger team who took ad- 
vantage of their ability to score an 8-1 victory. Again Artzi, 
the pride of the raiders, scored our only tally. 

A second meeting with Bridgewater State developed 
into the most exciting game of the season. Both teams 
fought hard and missed numerous scoring opportunities. 
The final score was registered as 0-0. 

The Red Raiders were visited by Durfee Tech for 
the final game of the season. A pass from Baines to 
Andrade, who booted it into the net, accounted for the 
lone point and the game for the home team. 

The soccer team deserves a word of praise for the 
outstanding sportmanship it showed during the season. 
Although most of the players were inexperienced they 
played with the spirit and the will to win.

donesia and America, held to a good record last 
season. 

The team had been scheduled to play against 
Stonehill College, Bryant College, Durfee Institute, 
and Bridgewater Teachers College, but owing to 
the rainy weather of the season, the games with 
Durfee and Bridgewater were postponed several 
times and then finally cancelled. Actually the team 
played only four matches during the entire season 
— two against Stonehill and two against Bryant. 

The Tech racketeers won their opening home 
match against Stonehill College on the Fairhaven 
High School court by a score of 4-1. The netmen 
then swept Bryant College at home and away by a 
score of 4-1. 

In a return match with Stonehill College at 
Brockton's Y. M. C. A., the racketeers were un- 
doubtedly out of form and suffered their only de- 
feat of the season by a close score of 2-3. This loss 
created a tie with Stonehill College in the league 
competition. 

Unfortunately, the league championship was 
never decided. With the season running short, and 
vacations already underway, three of Tech's players 
had to leave for their native countries immediately 
following Commencement. 

Under Coach Pacheco, the tennis team is 
again scheduled to play against Stonehill College, 
Bryant College, Bridgewater Teachers College, and 
Durfee Institute during the coming season. 

This year's returning lettermen are only Gran- 
ny Chiu and Red Blanchard. The new members on 
the squad include Howard Wong, Harry Wrench, 
and John Gates.

(7-5aSebali 



The 1952 baseball season ended with the NBTI 
club and Stonehill College tied for first place. The 
Raiders won the playoff game and the Southern 
New England Coastal Conference Baseball Champion- 
ship. 

The playoff was the toughest and most exciting 
game of the season. Textile won by a score of 2-0 
with the superb pitching of Jesse Fernandes. Our 
runs were. scored in the first inning from a walk by 
Wally England, a triple by Vasco Camacho and a 
double steal by Camacho and Babe Poitras. The 
game was tightly played with few scattered hits from 
then on. 



Our coach, Clarry Haskell, used throughout the season a team consisting of Joe Barbero at first, 
Nobby Rodil at second, Joe Perreira at short, Wally England at third, Jose Martinez in left, Vasco 
Camacho in center and Dick Lake in right. Babe Poitras and Tom Baines did the catching while Jesse 
Fernandes and Dick Bachand did the chucking. The remaining players on the squad were Dave Jones, 
John Viera, George Pappas and Al Sarkes. The team's record for the season was 5 wins and 5 losses. How- 
ever, the victories game in conference play where they were needed. 

The 1953 New Bedford Textile Baseball Team will be minus the services of Jesse Fernandes, 
Richard Lake and Joseph Perreira. However, Coach Clarry Haskell has a good nucleus to work with 
and should do all right with the new rookies and 
the return of Don Thatcher. A 12 game season has 
been scheduled with a 3 game trip to North Carolina. 
This trip is the first of its kind in many years for 
the baseball team. 



We believe that it is safe to predict that the 
1953 baseball team will have a successful year and 
probably will win its second straight conference title.

What a wonderful world of color 
was locked in that magic tube! 

Shimmering jewels, a brilliant mosaic— what pictures could be 
imagined in the tiny wonderland of a kaleidoscope! But careful! Don't 
jolt it! . . . Or you'll find that your wonderland has gone. 

Every color that danced in that miracle tube has been captured 
by dye scientists for everthing that people wear or people use. 
But these need not be kaleidoscopic colors that change— 
or unstable colors that fade; they can be colors that 
last for the entire lifetime of the material. 

That's the kind of color fastness that can be 
yours when you turn to Du Pont for dyes. 
Our technical service experts will help 
you find the right dye for the end use- 
whatever it may be. E. I. du Pont de Nemours 
& Co. (Inc.), Dyes and Chemicals Division, 
Wilmington 98, Delaware.

STILL WIDE OPEN 

Our American inventors and scientists, backed by our remark- 
able industrial know-how and skills, may seem to have produced 
today about everything it's possible to produce. Those with little 
faith in our country and its future would have us believe so. 

But to American youth the gates of opportunity are wider 
open than ever before. Thousands of new and better ways of doing 
things, of new products and new developments, will be created by 
those who properly prepare themselves.
